Linux in Schools
Brilliant idea. You can count me in too ..... if u can do with an
with a lot of contact. I might be the perfect example of the students u
planning to deliver to. I have just passed out of school which would
welcome me and my friends specially if we have something to offer on
I am from Naval Public School, Chankyapuri. Incidently some time ago
the school closed for vacations me and my computer teachers were
an introductory class sort of a thing b/w students, teachers and Linux.
What i feel is not only students (irrespective of their stream) but even
teachers could benefit from Linux. I proposed a "Free School" concept
was gladly accepted..... though i haven't find time to bring it closer
Your idea of convincing teachers and school authorities to host us does
only end there. We also have to convince students to come up to Linux
listen to us. "Why Linux?" most of them will say. What then. Giving them
presentation and a guaranteed running system does not help. More
on the meet.
Schools in UK which started using Linux a couple of months back now have
students coming up with ideas and programes to improve the current
Even students who could not afford to buy a full fleged system could now
with dumb terminals, what other kids with latest computers could.
Though i might not be a Linux guru, i can and would definately convince
students to start using Linux.
